Ningaloo Deep

Ningaloo Deep is the only marine eco-tour company at Ningaloo Reef, Western Australia, that specialises in whale shark interactions only. Our encounters with these amazing leviathans of the deep ares the main focus of your dayout on our comfortable 50 foot vessel. However, you will also be offered hospitality and qualified, friendly assistance both onboard and in the water.

Ningaloo Deep is a P.A.D.I Resort member and has gained certification by the National Tourism Accreditation Program and Ecotourism Australia. We are happy to share our up-to-date information on global whale shark conservation projects. You too can play a part in their conservation. We will be happy to show you. This will truly be a Ningaloo Reef dream to remember. Your expectation is our endeavour.

Swimming with whale sharks is a snorkelling experience and all the necessary equipment is supplied for your convenience. Snacks, lunch, and soft drinks are also provided. Video/CD purchases of your days outing will be available and should be arranged on board through our videographer.

Our full-day tour commences with a courtesy pick-up at approximately 0730 from your Exmouth accommodation. During the 35 minutes travel to the west side of North West Cape there will be a pre-tour brief. Embarkation will take place with the use of a tender vessel and should take no longer than 10 minutes. Upon arrival at the 50 foot catamaran “Seaspray” there will be a safety and orientation introduction. After stowing personal items our crew will offer a comprehensive talk on the process of interacting with the whale sharks. Then comes the big moment of excitement and intrigue. Should time permit there may be further snorkelling on Ningaloo Reef. The approximate time of return to your accommodation will be 16:00 to 17:00 hours.

We welcome your feedback and your recommendation.

Explore the isolated heart of the country, meet and connect with Aboriginal people and experience one of the oldest living cultures in the world. Go ‘walk-about’ and immerse yourself with Australia’s endless outback horizons.
